The racial overtones of the attacks on Superintendent Greene

Let me make this clear, I am not saying these men are racist, I am how asking why when a white man was the super, one who arguably didn’t do as well as her, there were no such attacks.


Richard Corcoran,
In May at an incredible state board of education meeting state commissioner Richard Corcoran chided superintendent Green to give our schools to the IDEA academy, saying the district had failed it’s children.  He even said he wants the authority to take over schools.

Jason Fischer 
Jason Fischer, amends his J-1 bill from having an appointed school board to having an elected superintendent.

Lenny Curry
The chutzpah of this guy as he has led the charge of the referendum, so DCPS can’t take care of its maintenance needs.


Mayor Lenny Curry says he’ll ensure problems facing Duval County … If your management (Greene) can’t fix basic needs like air conditioning, we will.”.

Jordan Elsbury, assistant to the mayor.
 

So Greene is a bureaucrat with little results, despite leading Manatee County and DCPS to its best graduation rates and to less than one percentage point away from an A district grade.

Then throw in Gary Chartrand the Ponta Vedra millionaire and puppeteer, who didn’t want Greene chosen to be super, for good measure

What do all of these people have in common? I think you can figure it out.

Let me make this clear, I am not saying these men are racist, I am how asking why when a white man was the super, one who arguably didn’t do as well as her, there were no such attacks.

  1. It is obvious what is going on, and it is what it is. If it walks like a duck and quack like a duck, it's a duck not an alligator!!! There is no need to deny the obvious, and you are right, I have never seen a superintendent treated this way.
